CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-Republicans ask “Is DuPage County over?”
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160909/ISSUE10/160909852
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Behind the small story of a one-notch downgrade in DuPage County’s credit rating is a bigger story of demographic and economic change. The cut by Fitch Ratings, which put DuPage’s debt at AA+, down from AAA, marked the first time in decades that the county hasn’t held top honors from all three of its rating agencies. County officials were quick to pooh-pooh the decision, which won’t have much fiscal impact. “DuPage County’s finances haven’t changed,” Chief Financial Officer Paul Rafac says in a statement, noting that the downgrade reflects new ratings criteria that put more weight on a government entity’s ability to raise tax revenues unilaterally. As a nonhome-rule entity in Illinois, DuPage has little power to hike tax rates without approval from Springfield or voters. That hasn’t been a problem for DuPage until now. Tax revenues rose naturally for decades following World War II as middle-class migration from the city brought new residents with disposable incomes. Subdivisions sprouted in former cornfields. Shopping centers sprang up along county byways. Corporations joined the influx, carving out bucolic headquarters campuses like McDonald’s Oak Brook complex. As population grew, so did the tax base. Sales tax collections surged, easing pressure on residential property taxes, which DuPage County hasn’t raised in eight years. Driving the virtuous fiscal cycle was one essential force: growth. But DuPage County’s population rose less than 1 percent from 2012 to 2015, and relatively little open land for development remains. “It’s a different landscape than it was 20 years ago,” says John Carpenter, CEO of economic development agency Choose DuPage. Meanwhile, young workers are spurning suburbia in favor of city neighborhoods their grandparents fled. Some businesses are following; most notably for DuPage, McDonald’s is abandoning its circa 1988 headquarters for a new home in the West Loop. THE COMPANY YOU KEEP Another worrisome trend for DuPage, which relies on sales taxes for 54 percent of its general fund revenue, is the migration of shoppers away from brick-and-mortar retailers to online merchants. “While sales tax revenue has grown between 4 and 5 percent annually over the past several years, it has slowed to only 1 percent growth in (fiscal year) 2016, leading the county to change its growth assumptions going forward to only 2 percent growth,” Fitch writes in explaining its downgrade. Of course, DuPage is far from alone. Postwar suburbs around the country are facing the challenges that come with slowing growth. And no fiscal crisis looms for DuPage—its finances are in much better shape than Chicago’s and the state’s. But as any CEO can tell you, things get tight when revenue plateaus. County and local officials in DuPage will face harder choices as they try to maintain services, fund capital projects and hold the line on taxes. For DuPage, keeping the no-property-tax-hike streak intact will become more difficult with each passing year. In an interview, CFO Rafac says DuPage has avoided a property tax increase by controlling expenses as revenues flatten. “I believe we will be able to continue to do that,” he adds. New revenue sources would make the job easier. That’s one reason DuPage has such high hopes for the proposed western access point at O’Hare International Airport. County planners foresee a flowering of restaurants, hotels and other businesses if the project goes forward as planned. “Bensenville will look a lot like Rosemont does today,” Carpenter predicts. Given the uncertainty surrounding western access, DuPage homeowners should hope the county has a Plan B.)

WASHINGTON TIMES
— OUTSTANDING: Values voters stand up and speak out – Jennifer Harper
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/sep/8/donald-trump-mike-pence-to-appear-at-value-voters-/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: It is a determined and significant event: The Values Voter Summit is now underway in the nation’s capital, drawing some 2,500 socially conservative activists with much on their minds. Some big names are part of it. Donald Trump and running mate Gov. Mike Pence will both appear — along with 70 other concerned, high-profile folk. They include everyone from actors Jon Voight and Kirk Cameron to Sens. Tim Scott, Tom Cotton and James Lankford. Other high-profile attendees include Allen West, Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, Oliver North, Bill Bennett, Laura Ingraham and Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle. Also on the list: Reps. Diane Black, Marsha Blackburn, Jim Bridenstine, John Fleming, Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan, Gov. Mike Bevin, and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. C-SPAN is covering the big doings. There’s a certain urgency in the air at the event, organized by the Family Research Council and now in its 11th year. And no wonder. This political landscape is a dynamic one. Some estimates now place the potential “evangelical voting bloc” at 60 million people, though media coverage often emphasizes how many of these voters sat out the last two elections for one reason or another. Values, however, continue to play a role. A new Washington Post poll of 72,000 registered voters in all 50 states found that 72 percent agree that “America today reflects their values less than it has in the past.” Gallup also found that 60 percent of Republican voters pine for a “conservative president, 32 percent favor a moderate and 6 percent a liberal. Almost a quarter of Democrats — 21 percent — preferred a conservative as well, 36 percent favor a liberal, 40 percent a moderate. Meanwhile, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, whose group is the event’s principal driving force, will conduct a news conference Saturday to underscore the group’s mission and reveal plans for a “Values Bus Tour” which will visit 20 states by election day. The riders intend to mobilize local voters to support “bedrock values” like religious freedom, national security and the sanctity of life. And it is quite the ride. On the first leg of the journey, the bus will stop in all 100 counties in the state of North Carolina.)

http://dailycaller.com/2016/09/08/hillary-clinton-men-bullied-me-while-i-was-taking-the-lsat/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hillary Clinton said she was harassed by a group of men who feared being drafted while she was taking a law school admissions test. The Democratic presidential nominee relayed the story to Humans of New York — a blog featuring interviews done on the streets of New York — Wednesday. “I was taking a law school admissions test in a big classroom at Harvard,” Clinton said. “My friend and I were some of the only women in the room.” “I was feeling nervous. I was a senior in college. I wasn’t sure how well I’d do. And while we’re waiting for the exam to start, a group of men began to yell things like: ‘You don’t need to be here.’ And ‘There’s plenty else you can do.’ It turned into a real ‘pile on.’”  “One of them even said: ‘If you take my spot, I’ll get drafted, and I’ll go to Vietnam, and I’ll die.’ And they weren’t kidding around. It was intense. It got very personal. But I couldn’t respond. I couldn’t afford to get distracted because I didn’t want to mess up the test. So I just kept looking down, hoping that the proctor would walk in the room.” “I know that I can be perceived as aloof or cold or unemotional,” she added. “But I had to learn as a young woman to control my emotions. And that’s a hard path to walk.” “Because you need to protect yourself, you need to keep steady, but at the same time you don’t want to seem ‘walled off.’ And sometimes I think I come across more in the ‘walled off’ arena. And if I create that perception, then I take responsibility. I don’t view myself as cold or unemotional. And neither do my friends. And neither does my family. But if that sometimes is the perception I create, then I can’t blame people for thinking that.” When Clinton recalled the story to New York Magazine in May, she said “that level of visceral… fear, anxiety, insecurity plays a role” in how America regards ambitious women. “Unpacking this, understanding it, is for writers like you,” Clinton said at the time. “I’m just trying to cope with it. Deal with it. Live through it.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump claims that Hillary Clinton lacks “the strength or the stamina” to run the country. He questioned in a tweet this week why the media was not covering a coughing fit she had at a rally in Cleveland. His party’s chairman scolded her for not smiling enough. And Trump insisted that the former senator and secretary of state does not resemble a commander in chief: “I just don’t think she has a presidential look.” The escalating attacks by Trump and his allies on Clinton’s vigor and appearance are providing new fodder for critics who say the real estate developer is trafficking in sexist stereotypes and fueling false Internet rumors in attempts to undermine her image with voters. Many Republican strategists warn that the approach is perilous for a GOP nominee who already has low standing among women across the political spectrum, saying his jabs could resonate in a negative way for those who have encountered similar put-downs from men in their own lives. For women who “have had to put up with inappropriate suggestions about their appearance or stamina, it probably doesn’t sit really well when they come out of the mouth of a presidential candidate,” said GOP pollster Whit Ayres, who is not supporting Trump.)

The 3,600-square-foot Tudor has five bedrooms, a fully furnished basement and a two-car garage. It had been listed in July for $1.65 million. The owners say they put it up for auction because they want to see what it’s worth. Open house events are planned for Sept. 25, Oct. 6 and Oct. 16. Auction participants must bring a bank or certified check for $90,000 to the auction. Auction officials say a reserve price hasn’t been disclosed but has been set.)
